The Captains of Enslavement

walmart  high cost of low price

If I were to begin an article with a statement which promoted the idea that no more than two dozen corporations control every aspect of your lives, that statement would be met with a lot of resistance. Please consider the following:

All money and money policy are controlled in this country by the ruling elite at the Federal Reserve. Publicly disseminated news (i.e. propaganda) is controlled by only five corporations which dominates 98% of the media. These are two facts that many people know and understand. However, what most people don’t understand is that control of nearly all retail, food production, food dissemination and the control of all water lies in just a few hands. Most of this takeover of the United States economy and the resulting essentials of life, has strong ties to the United Nations. This is a fact that will be explored in greater detail in a subsequent article.

Over the course of the next several days, I will be periodically examining the stranglehold that a scant few corporations have over the United States and its people. Be advised, this is just not another article about the rich getting richer and the poor getting poorer. This is an article which takes a peek at how very few control so many. When one comes to understand the implications of a nation our size that allows a few corporations to control all money, all media, all retail and nearly all food and water, then one comes to quickly realize how vulnerable the American people are to political manipulation and ultimate genocide as we have seen with Hitler, Stalin and Mao.

 

The Rich Are Getting Richer….

Emmanuel Saez has recently written another inequality update in which he states that:

 

“Top 1% incomes grew by 31.4% while bottom 99% incomes grew only by 0.4% from 2009 to 2012. Hence, the top 1% captured 95% of the income gains in the first three years of the recovery. From 2009 to 2010, top 1% grew fast and then stagnated from 2010 to 2011. Bottom 99% stagnated both from 2009 to 2010 and from 2010 to 2011. In 2012, top 1% incomes increased sharply by 19.6% while bottom 99% incomes grew only by 1.0%. In sum, top 1% incomes are close to full recovery while bottom 99% incomes have hardly started to recover”.

 

This sets the stage for a cursory examination of one of the biggest retailers on the planet.

 

Control of Retail Business

 

Retail outlets provide many essentials of life including the supplies and tools which allows us to maintain a level of independence over our lives. Please consider the following facts:

 

The average  U.S. family now spends more than $4000 a year at Wal-Mart.

The average GDP of  Wal-Mart (421 billion dollars) is greater than the GDP of 170 different countries. The owners of Wal-Mart, the six living members, make more money than poorest 30 percent of all Americans

 

One out of every four grocery dollars is purchased from Wal-Mart making it the most shopped grocery store outlet in America. Thirty three percent of all Americans shop at Walmart each week. If Wal-Mart was an army, with its nearly 3 million employees, it would be the second largest military second only to China. Wal-Mart is the biggest employer in 25 different U.S. states and 96% of all Americans live within 20 miles of a Wal-Mart, thus, making Wal-Mart an encroaching cancer that the American people cannot escape.

 

The effect of Wal-Mart’s negative impact on the country and on the economy has been devastating. While Wal-Mart’s market share quadrupled in the first decade in this century, the number of domestic independent retail outlets declined in number  by a staggering 60,000! Wal-Mart has literally no competition as they rake in more than five times the sales of Costco which is the second largest U.S. retailer. Wal-Mart spends nearly 8 million dollars on lobbying, not including outright political bribery through the campaign donation (i.e. bribery process). Subsequently, Wal-Mart does not have influence over the government when it comes to control of the retail industry, Wal-Mart IS THE GOVERNMENT when it comes to retail and increasingly food sales. They decide what laws are enforced and which are not.  If you doubt this statement, please consider the fact that it is a well-documented fact that Wal-Mart is in the human bondage business. No, I am not saying that they are into child sex trafficking, yet, but it is a well-established fact that they practice slave labor in overseas markets. And Wal-Mart is doing its best to bring slave labor to the United States. As a case in point, nearly 100,000 of Wal-Mart employees and their children are enrolled in Medicaid and are dependent on the government for healthcare, thus making it the fastest growing segment of our country to enter public welfare. For those that doubt the veracity of the statement that Wal-Mart is bringing both slave labor produced products and the practice of slave labor to America, here is a brief reading list.

Wal-Mart and the National Security State

 

Do you remember when Wal-Mart began to run the East German Stasi “snitch on your neighbor ” message at the checkout counters at Wal-Mart stores in which then DHS director, Janet Napolitano commanded Wal-Mart shoppers to spy on each other?

 

I wished I could say that Wal-Mart’s participation began and ended with this development. It is not likely that when you enter Wal-Mart to shop, that you are thinking to yourself that Wal-Mart would make a wonderful FEMA detention camp in times of national emergency or martial law. You might want to think just that if you continue to shop at Wal-Mart as you contribute to your own demise.

Conclusion

 

It is time for the final Jeopardy question: What is the single most disturbing fact contained in this article which can be verified beyond a shadow of a doubt? ….

 

Undoubtedly, the most disturbing fact associated with this article is the fact that 25% of the groceries sold in America, comes from this one retailer. And if we add in a few more corporations who control the vast majority of our food supply, you have before you the main tool of our future enslavement. Stalin, Mao and Hitler all used food as a weapon against its people and a clear picture of corporate dominance is emerging which will eventually do the same here. Food dominance by the few and its implications are the next topics in this series.

    Dave, I sent you an e-mail a few days ago but have not heard back.

    EDITOR’S NOTE: PLEASE TRY AGAIN

    If one is interested in survival, one should have already began preparing long ago. Learn edible plants from around your area. Tepary beans here in the SW are going to be a life saver. 29-32% protein. Learn up on your herbs and stock up on foods that last.

    A great contributing fact that enabled Wal-Mart to grow so fast and maintain its dominance is that Wally World doesn’t pay for anything, and I mean anything, before it is sold at one of their retail outlets. Everything inside those stores is sent there on consignment by the vendor. Wal-Mart doesn’t borrow one thin dime to stay in business. Wal-Mart doesn’t pay for any damages during shipment or damages that happen to the vendors merchandise while it is in one of those huge Wal-Mart warehouses. If you put merchandise in the Wal-Mart system and it doesn’t sale, you are responsible for paying for removal, charged for the shelf space/floor space, and sent a bill for all the above plus transportation costs. Wal-Mart, for the owners and stockholders, is the most risk free business on earth. Here is a good case in point: Check out the flowers, trees, and plants in the garden center at any Wal-Mart. They are wilted and twisted compared to a real Garden Center. Wal-Mart doesn’t pay if the plants die, only when they sale, so they could care less. Also a certain percentage is held back on all sales to cover warranty and returned items. God bless all of you out there, stop shopping at Wal-Mart, keep listening to Dave and keep praying and prepping.

    WILL THE “UNJUST” BE RESURRECTED ? 4

    Hi Everybody

    They that have done good will come forth to a resurrection of life. Some of these will receive a resurrection of life on the human plane, others on the spirit plane, still others on the highest order of the spirit plan–the plane of the Divine nature. Then Jesus tells us about the other general class–those who have done evil. This includes all whom God cannot approve and accept. Those who are not accepted are those who have not done good, according to God’s standard; they have done evil; they are unjustified. Many of them have been respectable, moral people, but they are not worthy of the “better resurrection.” These will come forth also that they may attain, if they will, complete raising up to life. They will be awakened from the tomb in order that they may have a resurrection. They will be resuscitated from hades, the grave, the death state; but their awakening from the tomb will be only the beginning of resurrection. Some will be awakened only to die again later, because of failure to accept God’s terms of blessing.

    The resurrection process will go on day by day, week by week and year by year during those thousand years–the great Resurrection Day, that Great Day, the Last Day, during which there will be an opportunity for all to gain life eternal. But whoever will not make the proper progress will be accounted unworthy of a full resurrection. Those only who will be adjudged worthy of everlasting life on God’s terms will get in. Thus there will be a resurrection a bringing up to perfect life, both of just and of unjust ones. All that are in the graves shall be brought forth, shall come to a knowledge of the Truth, to the intent that they may be restored, if they are willing and obedient, to all that was lost in Adam and redeemed by the world’s Savior–Christ Jesus. Acts 24: 15

    Interesting article. Your reference to the FEMA camp HAS come to mind. In many small towns, it’s the largest building present. Exits are limited, it has good parking facilities and is usually on a highway just on the edge of town. And the larger the city, the more Walmarts… or K-Marts.

  11. tlchief July 16, 2014 at 1:41 pm

    Wal-Mart (especially the Super ones which there are so many) will be FEMA supply and even people processing and holding centers. I have strongly suspected this for few years. Where I live there are 8–eight Walmarts within a 30 mile radius with at least half Super Centers. I also believe they had something to do with the Geo-engineering of SuperStormSandy In October,2012 on the eastern USA to put many small businesses out of business(especially ,New Jersey and New York ). Short time after “Sandy” what businesses that were not destroyed by the storm, were set on fire……… ON AND ON …..

    It seems they are going to “domesticate” us just as we have domesticated animals through their food.

  13. thisheart July 16, 2014 at 5:09 pm

    When Walmart arrived in the small town I lived in, it destroyed every beloved mom and pop shop from bakery to hardware store to department store. Novelist Bobbie Ann Mason documents the terrible change in several of her stories. In a few years our historic downtown area was shuttered, a thriving quaint and lovely place turned into a wasteland as part of Walmart’s philosophy of “saming America,” and ultimately destroying memories and future memories for Americans. Nothing but hatred for that place.

  14. hondo July 16, 2014 at 6:39 pm

    Hey Dave, it seems strange that next to every Wal Mart supercenter there is an accompanying Lowe’s home improvement center within a quarter mile. Just wonder if the government might want to double its occupancy space for the fema camps. thx

    The beforeitsnews video about Walmart as a fema camp has been removed. It is not on youtube, either.

  17. hondo July 17, 2014 at 3:28 am

    Hey Dave, and good morning. If you will allow this post, we wanted to thank Greg for the heads up on the Tepary beans. Info like this will help keep us alive during the food crisis, which will probably be never ending. Also Texas just had its first murder by a catch and release illegal. The murder was in Lubbock, a long, long, way from the border. Have you heard anything about the illegals getting ebt cards. We hear they are using them as far away as North Carolina. Thx for all you are doing, sir.

    When will the Alternative sites start to cover how every single municipality in the nation file CAFR’s?
    When will the Alternative sites cover the fact that every single city, county, state, school district, and federal government file CAFR’s?

    This is where our fight and focus should be, not the issues that fragment the minds with article upon article of numerous events which never cease.

    Walter Burien has educated many on this organized crime that is stealing trillions of taxpayer money.

    I wrote an e-mail asking Dave Hodges to look at it, but haven’t heard back yet. The issue with these CAFR’s is that they show that these entities are putting taxpayer money into funds and generating mountains of profits. The part where we need to get into this quickly and yesterday is that every single entity that does this (at last count it is over 185,000) pay back the principal they took for the investment, and not one penny of profit is ever returned or even shared with the taxpayers.

    One example (fact) The Rim of the World Unified School District of San Bernardino County, Ca showed in their 2009 Comprehensive Annual Financial Report that the District could pay off all existing debt, and still have a surplus of $61 MILLION DOLLARS!!

    That money is not on the taxpayer books, it is in investment funds for the district. This is just one district of over 185,000!!
    This is all hidden in financial trickery, laws written that make the district not pat off debt, and forces all the entities to pay into a system that never benefits the taxpayers!!

    I could care less about China Mart!! Why aren’t we all over this crime spree hidden in financial reports that are available to the public.
    In fact, there is a short paragraph at the conclusion of the CAFR’s that read (paraphrased here) That this information is for the viewing of the District, (and they mention the tied together entities) and should not be shared.

    Yet, it is a Federal Law that ALL CORPORATIONS have to file an annual CAFR, and it is a public domain document.

    Not only do they hide the numbers very well, but they attempt to hide the report also.

    2 out of 100 People in the public have no idea what a CAFR is. The government likes it that way.

    How many of you know or seen a CAFR?

    It is not easy to read and if anyone says it looks good, rest assured they did not understand the line items or what they represent.

    Ever checked the Taxpayer Funded Lobbying?
    Check California! They have hundreds upon hundreds of Taxpayer Funded Lobbying Groups who all get funded by the taxpayers.
    They even have a Janitors Lobbying Group!
    It is absolutely ridiculous that the America People have not caught on to this yet!!!

    I do understand though why this is pushed aside. There are huge amounts of people who depend of this income, and sadly they are killing the nation just to save a paycheck.

  19. American mom July 17, 2014 at 5:39 am

    I’ve see videos on youtube tracing the links between the Walmart corp/heirs and funding Common Core too.

    Maybe they’re contributing to stake out their product placement claim on CC tests?
